INDOT I-465 Noisewall
Self-performing noisewall installation.
INSIDE THE PROJECT
As part of Kokosing’s growth and increase in self-performance capabilities, Kokosing expanded into new markets to pursue foundation drilling and noisewall construction. On the east side of I-465 in Indianapolis, Indiana, Kokosing obtained its first INDOT contract in 2008 which included 13,000 linear feet of noisewall and totaled 203,000 square feet of pre-cast noisewall panels.
On the $6.4 million project, Kokosing self-performed both the foundation drilling and erection of the noisewall. The foundation work included the drilling of 14,000 linear feet of 24-inch diameter shafts and installation of 900 galvanized H-piles – placed in concrete – for noisewall support.
The project also called for the construction of two bridge-mounted noisewalls, which Kokosing also self-performed.
